Destineer Announces ‘Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding’
Hannah Teter, Gretchen Bleiler, and Lindsey Jacobellis Featured in New Snowboarding Game for Wii
Just in time for the world to celebrate prime snowboarding season, Destineer announces the imminent release of Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding for Wii starring Hannah Teter, Gretchen Bleiler, and Lindsey Jacobellis. The game features three of the national snowboarding team's biggest female athletes in their natural element, strapped onto snowboards that are rocketing down mountains or pulling off physics-bending tricks in the halfpipe. Teter, Bleiler, and Jacobellis have captured title after title in events like the X Games, US Open, World Championships, and the Winter Olympic Games along with awards and accolades for their sportsmanship, activism and all-around domination of the snowboarding world.
Gold Medalist Hannah Teter says of Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding, "We are all friends yet are super competitive, especially when we are riding against each other at contests around the world. Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding lets gamers everywhere test themselves against us in fun re-creations of our specialty events. The game being on Wii allows you to do maneuvers to challenge riders like me!"
Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding puts these amazing women front and center, sharing the spotlight with the top two male snowboard cross riders Nate Holland and Seth Westcott in Snowboard Cross, Halfpipe, and Slopestyle events. With a nail-biting sensation of speed, players can choose to master the mountain and ride with the best using traditional Wii controls or use the Balance Board for an extra layer of riding simulation. Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding is priced at $29.99 and will be released exclusively for Wii in February 2010.
Keep an eye out for each of the pros in Triple Crown Championship Snowboarding as they compete in the nailbiting 2010 snowboarding season. Good luck to Gretchen, Hannah, Lindsey, Nate, and Seth!

Outside of the halfpipe, Teter has started a charity called Hannah's Gold that raises money for safe water infrastructure in Kenya.
